Comprehensive 3D design solution that adds powerful simulation and design validation to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional. ECAD/MCAD Collaboration; Reverse Engineering; and more.

SOLIDWORKS Premium provides powerful, easy-to-use functionality that automates tasks, streamlines workflow, and helps you quickly define and validate the form, fit, and function of your designs. With application specific tools that empower innovation and allow for more design decisions to be explored, SOLIDWORKS Premium is the single best product for 3D mechanical design available in the market today.

With the comprehensive suite of application specific tools and industry leading part, assembly and drawing capabilities, SOLIDWORKS Premium will turn your ideas into reality faster than you ever thought possible.

SOLIDWORKS Premium Advantages

SOLIDWORKS Premium further expands on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional to deliver the flagship 3D solution in the SOLIDWORKS family.

The rich simulation capabilities let users test product performance against real life motion and forces. Tolerance stack up analysis ensures manufacturability and helps resolve complex assembly issues early in the design process. To summarize, you get all the benefits of a complete 3D design solution with SOLIDWORKS Premium.

  1. Improve user productivity by automatically detecting and resolving modeling
  2. Easy customization of the SOLIDWORKS user interface enables you to dramatically increase design productivity
  3. Speed up development of new designs by leveraging existing work using SOLIDWORKS design automation tools
  4. Powerful visualization and collaboration
  5. Easily create, share, and manage with large design, collaboration, and data management tools
  6. Complex assembly done right

Capabilities (Standard and Professional Capabilities Included)

Time-based Motion Analysis  (SOLIDWORKS Motion)

Motion analysis is solved using a time-based approach for rigid body kinematic and dynamic problems. SOLIDWORKS Motion takes the designer beyond the free drag movement available in a CAD environment and into a true physical calculation of the forces and motions of an assembly as it would move under environmental loads (external forces) and/or internal loads (motors, springs, and dampers).

Linear Static Analysis for Parts and Assemblies (SOLIDWORKS Simulation)

Tightly integrated with SOLIDWORKS CAD, linear stress analysis using SOLIDWORKS Simulation can be a regular part of your design process, reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Automated Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis (TolAnalyst™)

TolAnalyst™ tolerance analysis tool automatically checks the effects of tolerances on parts and assemblies to ensure consistent fit of components and to verify tolerancing schemes before the product goes into production. The tolerance analysis can be rerun instantly if a dimensioning or tolerancing change is made, enabling you to get to an optimized tolerancing scheme more quickly.

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration (CircuitWorks™)

CircuitWorks™ enables users to share, compare, update, and track electrical design data so users can more quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration problems. Mechanical and electrical engineers can work closely in creating complex designs, speeding up the product development process, saving time and development costs, and accelerating time-to-market.

Routing of Pipes and Tubes

Use the wide range of tools in SOLIDWORKS Premium to simplify design and documentation of piping and tubing for a wide range of systems and applications, including machinery, skid systems, and process plant piping.

Routing of Electrical Cabling and Wiring Harnesses

SOLIDWORKS Premium includes design tools that build a path of pipes, tubes, or electrical cables for your assembly. These tools cover the needs of a growing number of products that use sensors, control systems, and other systems that require wiring and cabling.

Reverse Engineering (Scanto3D)

ScanTo3D with SOLIDWORKS Premium reduces the time required to build complex 3D models of real-world items, such as sculpted objects, and anatomical items. 3D data such as point clouds and mesh (which is attained from laser scanners and other devices) can be imported, parsed, manipulated, modified, and ultimately turned into 3D solids and surfaces.

Advanced Surface Flattening

SOLIDWORKS Advanced Surface Flattening functionality provides control and flexibility to easily flatten more complex surfaces. You can automatically flatten the surface and interrogate an interactive deformation plot to graphically view stretch and compression concentrations that can occur when flattening some surfaces with high curvature.

Routing of Rectangular and Other Sections

SOLIDWORKS Routing users can route rectangular and round sections to meet their design needs. Equipment designers, product designers, machine designers, facility designers and others all need rectangular section routing to complete their designs that include ducting, cable trays, conveyors, material handling chutes, and many other systems.
